New York based Black Wing Halo have announced the free download of “Rats” from their debut album, Welcome to the Show. Drawing influences from Tom Waits, Mike Patton and Nine Inch Nails among others, “Rats” highlights the band’s trademark blend of punk and rock music, gritty on bass and heavy on drums. Featured in the movie ‘Locked in a Garage Band’, the track serves as an appetizer to the full album produced by Jason Rubal (The Cure, NIN, Dresden Dolls, Killswitch Engage) available now.

Black Wing Halo is Josh Weinstein (vocals, guitar), Stephanie Linn (vocals), Doug McGregor (bass) and Justin Hofmann (drums). Birthed from a solo project by Weinstein, Black Wing Halo has metamorphosized into it’s current line-up blending rowdy punk, crunchy electronic, rock n’ roll and 90’s grunge reflecting their ever-expanding love and admiration for noise. The four continue to spread to the masses, having played SXSW, NXNE, and CMJ, as well as sold out shows along the East Coast.
